in female labor force participation and not hours worked. Labor force participation in the data is a binary variable and hence it makes a sense to focus on a case that produces corner solutions. This is in contrast to some of the previous work on the subject, which, casually, tends to treat labor force participation and hours worked as synonymous.

female labour force participation rates. This was needed to quantify the region-specific barriers to female labour force participation and also the relationship between economic growth and the rates of participation.

The resulting estimated coefficients were used to quantify the changes in female labour. Pedraza, in International Encyclopedia of the Social & Behavioral Sciences, Labor Force Participation.

White female labor force participation is affected most strongly by the long-term changes in the social climate. Substantively, we hypothesize that particular patterns of structural change are important drivers of female labor force participation and thus could support one of the key mechanisms underlying the feminization U hypothesis.

We therefore directly assess the effect of disaggregated sectoral growth on female labor force participation. By exploiting. Female participation in the labor force in the states of America was strongly associated with male participation in the labor force.

Participation was higher in states which were in the north, which were more urban and where unemployment was less. Thus, female labor force participation appears to be affected by general social conditions which affect both sexes alike.

Change was, however, concentrated to distinct periods, namely the 's, the post-war 's, and the 's and 70's. The 's also emerges as an important.

In most industrialised countries the male labour force does not grow, or grows at a much smaller rate than the female labour force. This is the case in Sweden.
